There are groups of children and young people whose specific circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them and support their special educational needs.  These groups include, amongst others, looked after children, care leavers, children or young people in hospital or youth custody or children of service personnel or children and young people with SEN who are educated at home.


Chapter 10 of the Code of Practice sets out information about managing their circumstances in order to help achieve good outcomes for them.
